Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato fries are one of my favorite small appetizers I love to munch on. They were on my to do list for a long time & the time has come for me to experiment a healthy version of these at home. I saw many recipes but one caught my eye with the crispy texture I'm looking for. Baked sweet potato fries are tend to get soft in texture. Then I came across a recipe suggested adding corn starch for a crispier texture. The end result was satisfying as they were crispier out side & softer inside. One thing I would love to change the next time I'm making this fries is cutting them a little thicker than I have done here. Other than that they were perfectly good to munch on without any guilt.

- Baking time varies from oven to oven. So check in between to avoid burning them.
